Since winning the coveted Perrier Best Newcomer Award at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1997, Arj Barker has firmly established himself as one of the golden boys on the international comedy circuit. For years, he has been honing his craft at comedy festivals and clubs all around the world.
He has made numerous appearances on late night talk shows, including the Letterman and Conan O'Brian shows, as well as starring in his own half hour special on the HBO produced by Comedy Central. Arj also plays ‘Dave’ on HBO’s Flight of the Sonshords and has just finished filming the second series in New York . Get it quick. This is world-class comedy.
“It’s a joy to spend an hour in his world” 5 Stars The Adelaide Advertiser
Though acting is a consideration, Barker seems to enjoy doing stand-up and travelling most. And so he continues to tour the world, bringing his original band of humour wherever there’s a stage and an English speaking audience.
To date he has performed in over 10 countries including;
Canada, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Ireland, Norway, Australia and even China.
“Arj sold every ticket last year and the year before and was the most popular comic. Australians love his warped self-deprecating humour.” The Herald Sun
